is a tradition involved in the defense supply chain and how it matters this symposium seemed appropriate and timely and one of the missions as he mentioned that the potomac institute is to elevate the policy discussions on the matter is of critical when portents to the nation. from not going to speak today to defy dewitt will only be to fill in for the deputy assistant secretary of, and security who unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute. i did have a short article you'll see on the front table and it's also on the web site, but the supply chain threat is as much a matter of national security as it is cybersecurity it's part and parcel and in some ways it is as difficult if not more difficult is ongoing in washington to address this nation needs a couple some discussion of how to approach this matter with the real concerns are even before we get to what the answers are it must be recognized as a threat. it must be recognized the status quo is not acceptable and it's not even possible. it's not going to remain the same one we were a mother and we must recognize the government inte
defense attorney, stood on a downtown los angeles sidewalk and he watched his chief investigator seized by the police caught in the act of bribing a juror. a few weeks later, darrow was indicted on two counts of bribery, and burt franklin, the investigator, agreed to testify against them. he swore that darrow had ordered him to pay $4000 to jurors who agreed to vote not guilty. and darrow was at that time at the height of the same one of america's foremost trial lawyers, political leaders and populist champions, and his careened staggered off track there in southern california. caught up by shame he left his wife one reunite for the apartment of his mistress. with a revolver in one pocket and a whiskey barrel -- whiskey bottle in the other, he sat down and vowed to kill them so. she brought out two glasses. they sat at a wooden table underneath one of those swinging bare lightbulbs. and fortunately for us she talked him out of it. he went on to create an american architect, lawyer for the little guy, advocate for the common folk. poking his thumbs, regarding the jury from beneath that c
the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the u.n. would make that appearance after that event? i would have expected some other member
define a new defense strategy for the twenty-first century in a remarkable process last winter, steered personally by president obama which was unprecedented in my experience. the president brought together the leadership of the department of defense and others in a conversation about the future trajectory of national defence that went on through several months. we made a series of decisions through that process to design a balance, effective defense strategy, taking into account cuts imposed upon us and above all making the transition. .. >> underlying our security engagement with the region is our support for longstanding principles that go well beyond security. a free and open access to commerce, of a just international order that upholds the rule of law, of open access to all domains, and of the peaceful resolution of disputes. we seek a peaceful asia-pacific region where all the states of the region, all of them, can enjoy the benefits of security and continue to prosper just as they have for almost 70 years, since the valiant efforts of the brave men and women who fought
ladicals with safans. the american freedom defense initiative sued last month for the right to display the ads metro stations. they up in subway stations in new york city and the judge said they must be displayed in the d.c. area no later than 5:00 on monday. the metro sportsperson said that metro will comply with the order and the ads will go up this weekend. robert muse of the american freedom law center joins us live by phone. the attorney for a blogger who sued the right to put up the ads and good to have you with us, sir. >> it's great to be with you, sir. jot real fear here from metro, and i think, new york subways as well was the potential violence in the middle east, after the movie depicted someone who was bad or equated as a fraud. you didn't see it this way? no, in fact to equate that violence to anything that -- is pure speculation. one of the things can you see, and i am sure one of the viewers will see, all of the activity and violence going in the middle east. in a civil society, if you object to speech, the response to that is not to engage in violence but more speech a
lose a lot of jobs in the washington area. washington defense contractors, they would be considered ground zero here. the latest is the white house is again asking defense contractors to stop warning their workers about potential layoffs, so much so now the office of management and budget says the government will cover the legal costs for any contractors that might face lawsuits if they lay off workers without giving them a warning. basically the administration is asking the companies to ignore their liability, the workers potential liability with investors who invest in these companies, they say it's too speck live. republicans say it's playing politics in battleground states like virginia. economists have not stopped warning about the potentially cradling of the job market. virginia could stand to lose 65,000 defense-related jobs alone. maryland projects it could lose almost 13,000 jobs. george mason university economist estimates sequestration could put 2.1 million jobs at risk next year alone. >> no one on either end of pennsylvania avenue doing anything as real human beings are
, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he deal with that in the debate for an hour and a half? so will obama go after the guy, not play defense, not finesse the guy, knock him out and end this thing. and will the other guy be able to deal with the unexpected, which perhaps will be obama coming after him, not him coming after obama. >> chris, when you talk about the president potentially going after mitt romney, do you mean in terms of stylistic aggression, or do you means in terms of trying to nail him as a flip-flopper or going really aggressively against his policies. which do you mean? >> i would say this. you are promising something new. you keep saying i've got something new. everything you've said sounds like what we got rid of because we had a disa
to defense budget will mean to small businesses and factories that supply defense contractors and honor veterans. will these businesses be shut down? what we can our national security because a weakened economy? these are tough questions. veterans need to know that the american legion and our elected officials are working hard to resolve these issues. these men and women have sacrificed in ways we are only beginning to understand. their families have and will, it's truly up to us to ensure their sacrifices are rewarded, the promise of a brighter future. that brighter future we all know depends on the ability to earn a decent living. in my written testimony you will find jobs among american legion's list of priorities. a struggling economy is specifically improved career prospects for veterans. will go a long way towards solving the number of problems facing our nation today. it's no secret that a large percentage of american veterans are struggling to find work, having faced jobless rate is much is two-thirds higher than in the comparable civilian population in the past year. the americ
. you know, if you look at the situation, it would -- he -- he says he is going to increase defense spending. he says he is going to give us all a $5 trillion tax cut or at least the wealthy people and balance the budget. that doesn't take an act of congress. it takes magic. >> jennifer: all right. you are in his war room prepping him for debates, and you know you are going to get this question. how does the math work? what loopholes, deductions will you close or reduce? what would you advise him? >> there are over 200 tax deductions we have out there. his $5 trillion tax increases would cost us $550 billion a year. that's half of all of the deductions that are already out there. the top five account for 50% of that $1.1 trillion. and that's -- you know, that's health care, they are not going to cut that. [overlapping speakers] >> jennifer: okay. >> here is what he is going to do. he is going to tell the people that he is going to go the economy; that people are going to be out there paying taxes; there are going to be far fewer unemployed -- >> jennifer: that's
. ronald reagan lost most of that debate. he was on the defensive. jimmy carter was attacking him. and then he had this positively brilliant close about are you better off? and he did it so well. peter hart did a bunch of focus groups before and after. clearly reagan had a lower threshold. he had to prove to people he was acceptable. >> that's what mitt -- you're describing mitt romney. you're describing mitt romney because voters -- >> voters don't have the kind of negatives. he did not have 51% of people having an unfavorable view. secondly, you could say mitt romney is as good a debater all you want. gipper against mitt romney when it comes to charm, people saying i want to have this guy on television for four years, it's no contest. >> willie, following up on what mike barnicle said, the one thing mitt romney has going for him is who he is running against. there are a lot of republicans that voted for barack obama that are disappointed. there are a lot of independents that voted for obama who are disappointed. there are a lot of conservatives who don't want to vote for them th
of defense in a coordinated effort, in reconnaissance. but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense into a police organization. we are using our military assets in a prudent way to deal with interdiction, and we've made some success in this area. seventy tons of cocaine have been stopped. but, you know, when you look at the drug problem and it is a tremendous problem, and there are no easy solutions to it it's a complicated problem, and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug-free america, which is a challenge and a goal of all of us. not only will we utilize national defense and the department of defense, but we've got to get on the demand side of the ledger; we've got to get to education. and education ought to begin at home, and it ought to be reinforced in our schools. and there's another thing that will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets, we will use military assets but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem is law enforcement. and
's not on the offensive. he's on the defensive. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: with these republicans, you got to stay on the offensive. >> bill: absolutely. >> caller: come out with lie after lie after lie. and they're going to do it until it almost makes you believe the lie until you fact check. out on the stand he wasn't prepared. wait a minute. he had -- american people have voted him ahead of romney so far. so how could you get there and i hate to say it and just stumble like this? >> bill: you're not the first one to use the word stumble. glen said that in pretty -- in politico this morning. maybe he felt -- look, this thing's in the bag. i'm not going to blow it. by getting too assertive and too aggressive here but uh-huh. this thing ain't in the bag. far from it. not at all. and for millions of people last night, you know, we're into this all the time. okay? you and i. we do that every day. we do it for three hours every day. on radio and on television. so we're into all of these -- a lot of people watching last night
. >> thanks for being here. i am part of the children's defense clinic here at richmond. we recently read miller v. alabama. what do you feel about the treatment of juveniles in the justice system? to their need to be any changes? >> the way i view my job is actually to decide cases, and not the state lots of views about, here is what i think about penal reform, or here is what i think about children in the justice system. there are a range of legal questions that i might have views about, but in the end, it is really -- that is not the way i conceive my role. i conceive my role as a judge to decide particular cases, and the issues in those cases that come before me. in miller and jackson, speaking for five members of the court, i addressed one of those questions, which was a question about mandatory life without parole sentencing for juveniles. as my vote reflects, i thought mandatory life sentencing for juveniles is inappropriate, and the justice should have discretion to decide whether it is life without parole or some lesser penalty. in signing that case, i am not deciding, and will n
during the debate, then automatically you are playing defense and wasting the time you would like to be using to make a proactive statement just reacting to what the other person is saying. so i think if somebody hits you with a lie in a debate you have to let the fact checker do some of that heavy lifter for you. when you were in the debate did you feels like you could respond? >> jennifer: when you are in a debate and somebody has said something completely false about you, you think do i want to spend my time responding to that craziness, which gets me really mad because they have done this or spend my time with my proactive agenda. there are some things you may want to respond to but when should you use your valuable debate time to actually do a response to an attack. >> i think when it's to your benefit to do that, if you can turn that around and make the other person who is making the charge look bad, that's when you do it. but it is so tricky. the thing that is so interesting about debates is you are in the moment. there is so much pressure, so much goi
body near sunol. yesterday, defense attorneys say that esteban was at an emotional low point at the too -- at the time of her death. the lawyers do not deny that she killed michelle le. they say it happened in the in the heat of passion and should not be considered first or second-degree murder. >>> the military plan to track down those responsible for the deadly attack in benghazi. >>> the truth is. i'm overweight. you could call me fat and yes, obese on a doctor's chart. but to the person who me that letter, do you think i don't know that? >> a letter from a news reporter that is resonating all over the country. vo: for years, sacramento politicians have chopped away funds for our schools. today, we're forty-seventh out of fifty in per-pupil funding. now these politicians say unless we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this
was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once gingrich won south carolina, he turned it on. the next couple of debates, everybody talked about gingrich master debater and romney won. he does have some debating skills. >> he's good under pressure. and the good part is, he's under pressure. >> here's the historical problem with that, there's very little correlation between debate performance and changing the dynamic of a race. you have to search wide and far to find somewhere where the debate has changed the dynamic in the race in a person who's not leading 45 days out if a guy comes back and wins that race. he's up against history here for changing the dynamic. >> but there is a challenge. he has to be likable. only one out of five americans are going to watch this. those are the opinion makers across this country. what he has to be is likable. the pundits say, he didn't make this point or that point. you decide who wins a debate on television with a sound-off, not on. >> i disagree with you a little bit. you go back to 2004. john kerry went into th
of texas. and we are waiting for thea, peels relate to the defensive marriage act and section 8, as marriage between only a man and a woman. we will get a preview from a d.o.j. official. republican lawmakers are demanding answers about the cofnsalate in libya that left four americans dead. the head of the house homelaommg for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. joining us, a member of the house armed services committee. sir, thank you for your time today. >> you are welcome. good to be here. >> shannon: do you feel you have been briefed and brought up to date at this point? what are the biggest outstanding, remaining questions for you at this point? >> we were given a classified brief beige hillary clinton and others. i feel like we got more from the niewrns than from the briefing. i think it was very inadequate and unhelpful. i agree with peter king. and susan rice should be resign. this is incompetence at best or a coverup at worst. >> shannon: all right. do you feel she was sent with the best information she had at the time? she did say at points, this is
at the lustration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. present romney might decide he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. it does seem like that has a lot of salience and presidential debates. i.t. think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attacked as publicly since 1996 or before. it is remarkable. the republicans were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action given the polls. they do not do it anymore. john kerry said maybe it is time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down that road. that is all gone. this is why we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. part of it was there was an incredibly bitter campaign in california over proposition 29 which banned racial preferences in state programs in 1996. really bitter. i think it is fair to say there is an awful lot of demonizing going on against the supporters of proposition 209. it was bloody. i think politicians look at that and say i do not want to get into that. joe lieberman backe
in the debate last night. plus, big bird thrust into campaign politics and on the defensive. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> only 33 days to election and an entirely new dynamic in the battle between president obama and mitt romney. the republican nominee is widely seen as the winner of last night's debate while even the president's strongest supporters now concede he was not at the top of his game. and now the president is back out there on the campaign trail. he's getting ready to speak at a rally over at the university of wisconsin in madison. we're goingo be hearing from him live this hour. but first, listen to what he said about mitt romney at a rally earlier today before he left denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [ laughter ] but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said w
that defense, i'm in the locker room yesterday talking to trent williams. we have a pretty good rapport, so i asked him abodefense. this is a veteran move in a way to get out of the interview. take a listen. >> i know 4-0, everybody talks about their offense, what do you see on tape? >> what do you feel on tape about the defense? >> technically i'm not supposed to do this interview. >> see what i mean? that's the way they get out of this thing. >> great. >> pulls rg3 in, and he says, it's not my day to talk. you're on your own. it's so smooth. looking at rg3, and trent is gone. that's what i have to deal with. more coming up, including the former redskins kicker will join us instudio. we'll talk about the special teams issues and see what he's doing to stay loose. >> thank you. >> no problem. >> see you in a bit. >>> kicking off a program today to help residents become first time home buyers. coming up, what you need to do to see if you qualify. >> and -- >> go ahead. >> okay. bed bugs have moved into some apartments on a local college campus. yuck. what is being done to get rid of these tiny
israel's iron dome which is the missile defense system. we did it collectively. and when israel was faced with the palestinians going to the united nations, and declaring, asking for unilateral declaration of statehood, there was one country, one country that stood with israel and stop that, and that was the united states of america with me talking to the president of the united states and the secretary of state making sure that did not happen. >> moderator: thank you. our next question comes from brent boynton it will directed to senator heller. >> those of us have heard of the drought come and different degrees of nevadans, just how devastating it can be to the stake him if it were listed as an endangered species. economist tells it would shut down a lot of our economic development. realistically, what can you do in the senate to prevent that from happening. heller: there's a lot we can do on this particular issue. it's a huge issue. for someto grow. hunting and fishing in the state of nevada, i have a little bit of experience with it. 's stage growls isn't a big issue for the state of
the debate by putting the president on the defensive, spoke directly to voters and there was a moment or two of humor. will we see the same mitt on the trail for the past 16 months. you be the judge. here he is stopping by a colorado cpac meeting before leaving denver. >> last night i thought was a great fuopportunity for the american people to see two different visions for the country. i think it was helpful to be able to describe those visions. i saw the president's vision as trickle-down government, and i don't think that's what america believes in. >> all right. let's put it through the spin cycle. steve, you were there in denver. what's your take? >> looking at that obama response, i think everybody says why didn't you say it to his face? why didn't you say that last night? i think, look, it's pretty well established by this point why this was such a disastrous debate for obama. i'll play a quick clip here, and this is a jumping-off point to talk about what he needs to do in the next debates to avoid a repeat of this. let's play a clip of an opening romney gave him that he completely mi
the requirements the defense contractors must send out notices to the employees were going to be laid off and those employers are already talking about layoffs and they are getting nervous. if you are a dividend investor and will get 15 to 45%, january 1 with some probability, you are starting to worry about being in the market. so this isn't something that is going to wait until january. it's already hurting the economy and if we look over the fiscal cliff would be responsible and extreme, so the entire issue in the fiscal cliff is to get from here to the spring of 2013 being good stewards of the economy and not costing the recession and that should be the goal. now, if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the first payroll tax cut, this temporary holiday i think there is pretty much a bipartisan consensus that is going to go away. there are some tax increases. it is inconceivable but we are going to get rid of the taxes in the affordable care act between now and january 1 savitt is another increase that is going to happen for sure. that puts a premium on avoiding the rest of these tax hikes and s
behind us the same words to pray the trooper said troopers our defense. these men put on their death mask and came at us with sticks trembling as with horses and releasing tear-gas. i was hit in the head by a trooper with a stick, had a concussion and i thought i was going to die. i thought i saw death. 47 years later i don't recall how i don't know how i made it past that bridge but i do remember in that little church more than 2,000 people were trying to get in to protest what had happened on the bridge and someone said something to the audience. i stood up and i said i don't understand how president johnson can't send troops to vietnam and cannot send troops to selma alabama to protect people whose only desire is to get ready to register to vote, to march from selma to montgomery. 17 of us were hurt and admitted to a local hospital. the next day dr. martin luther king jr. came to selma to visit with us and he said that he asked religious leaders to come. more than a thousand priests, rabbis came and walked across the bridge. [applause] so, we made a lot of progress but there are still
that defense contractors must send out notices to employees that will be laid off. they are getting nervous. if you are a dividend investor in looking at it going from 15 to 45% in were one with some probability, -- in january, you are worried about being in the market. if we go over the fiscal club, it would be irresponsible in the extreme. the entire issue with the fiscal cliff is to get from here to spring 2013 being goods to words in the economy and not causing a recession. that should be the goal. if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the payroll tax cut, the temporary holiday, i think there is pretty much a bipartisan consensus that will go away. i consider it inconceivable we will get rid of the new taxes between now and june were one. -- january 1. that places a real premium on avoiding the rest of the tax hikes and spending cuts. i think the sensible thing to do is to say to congress, and your strong this in case -- your strongest debate, please extend tax rates for one year, and would you get to the sequester, the $109 billion across-the- board spending cuts for defense and non-
cutting from the federal defense budget to inject the leftover dollars into infrastructure? next call is from capitol heights, maryland, a democrat. what would you ask tonight? caller: i would like to ask mitt romney how he is going to fix the economy when he knows very well how the republican majority congress allowed them to climb up the ladder. he can be able to make the economy -- improve the economy for the middle-class. >> thank you. next up, we'll introduce you to mike mccurry. he served as press secretary during the council -- clinton administration. he is the democrat co-share of the commission on presidential debates. nice to see you tonight. thank you for being with us tonight. >> greatly back on c-span. >> we always enjoy having you take part. let me ask you, with so few people registering themselves as undecided at this point, what are these debates about this year? >> they will be -- changed some people's minds. maybe there are people who are not quite decided, even if they said they will support 1 candidate or the other. some people might in fact switch it up. i think t
way is, let's go back to year 2000 defense department levels. we have a very bloated, wasteful military budget that has doubled over the year 2000. are we twice as secure? i do not think so. we can look at the blow back happening across the middle east. you can see having this hyper military is a man these drone wars and pakistan and somalia, which the president began to expand on day 3 and office. there were no republicans to blame it on. he began to expand the war effort massively. it is calling for $600 billion to renovate nuclear weapons and a new modes of delivering them. this is not the direction we need to go. we need a foreign policy based on human rights, not on the procurement of oil resources. we provide for a green a new deal that would directly create jobs. because it creates jobs in the green economy, it allows us to back off these wars for oil and save hundreds of billions of dollars on the bloated military. instead it puts that money into jobs, health care, and education -- the things we need at home to create national security. host: the biggest challenge is ge
. >>> the department of defense has now identified the remains of seven soldiers. one of them is from the bay area. sergeant james a.sisney and the six other marines were on board a pbj1 aircraft that failed to return from a training mission in 1944 over an island in the pacific. their remains will be buried thursday with full military honors at arlington national cemetery. >>> the german parent company of team mobile is in talks to merge its u.s. division with georgia tech. the german company tried to get out of the market when it tried to sell wireless at&t. metro pcs and team mobile use incompatible systems. >>> this female poodle mix was hit by a car in massachusetts. investigators say the driver slammed on the breaks but didn't see the dog and kept going. it wasn't until the car hit east providence rhode island that another driver noticed what had happened. >> she was kind of wedgeed in there with the license plate and the license plate cover. >> well the dog had minor injuries but you can tell she's in pretty good shape. investigators are know trying to find her owner. >>> driving in san fr
of this defense, i really believe that. seeing what he's able to do, it's very unfortunate. just a big disappointment. it's something that you never want to see happen. but i guess -- i don't know how you prevent that. just a freak deal. >> they need him back there in the secondary. speaking of injuries, the point guard out for eight weeks with a knee injury. media day this afternoon. walt talked about the knee issue and how anxious he is to get back on the court. >> it's tough. i mean, just trying to keep positive people around me, try to stay positive, don't think negative. just try to learn as much as i can on the sideline. just believe in my coaches and teammates that they can hold it down until i get back. >> john wahl, training camp starting tomorrow for the wizards. that is week number two of the cooley report. any other questions you want me to ask chris? >> i'm here. >> i'm just curious to know, you know, he looks at least as comfortable as you do. and he's only been doing this two weeks. what's up with that? >> we're going to have to slow him down a little bit. he's going to
have a self- defense move. we're going to show you to help get you out of one of these attacks. so far, four attacks, the last one last night at 7:15 near the corner of exmore. this is behind springfield plaza. none of the victims were physically injured, but they have been scared. >> i'm walking the streets, i'm always looking behind me, all the time. >> keep aware of your surroundings, there's a grope on the loose. >> i don't think anybody will be grabbing me. >> having a dog helps. >> scared to go out. after we heard that, we're scared go go out now. >> these women are walking in groups and fathers are warning their daughters. >> don't go out after 6:00. don't go walking around. >> police think it's the same guy who now grabbed four young women in this area. >> she was walking along the sidewalk about 7:15 when she felt someone come behind her very quickly and grab her and then run away. >> each time the creep grabs them from behind and fondles thr breasts. >> demonstrates how to get out of a hold. he taught me how to do it in a few minutes. >> yes, like that. bang. >>
think the will of the government is to do big things like national defense and build highways and education. and also making environment where it's easy enough for businesses to hire people and employ people and kind of stay out of everybody's way. >> host: how is it doing on those? >> caller: i don't think it's doing really well when the minimum wage is sitting at $10 an hour in some states. it's not there yet but it's getting very quick. and that isn't enough to employ people some people like myself, a small businessman, it's hard for me to employ more people when i'm having to pay so much for everything. the price of everything is going up, the price of fuel, the price of electricity, the price of food, the price of everything is going up right now. so i don't think the government is doing a good job. >> host: thanks in washington. "the wall street journal" this morning another comparison between the two candidates is and so much on the role of government, the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants the new economic patriotism that mitt romney calls t
and development, and how does adding $5 trillion, really $7 trillion when you add the defense spending to the deficits grow our economy? i think the american people are going to want to know that. >> willie -- john heilemann. >> david, it's john heilemann here. >> hey, john. >> you're making a very convincing and compelling case. why did the president not make the same case you're making this morning on stage against mitt romney last night? >> the president came to talk to the american people about his ideas and where we go as a country, john. there's going to be -- there will be more debates. and we have more of an opportunity in the next 30 days to continue to bring these facts to the attention of the american people. and i would just say to you and to your whole crew, because i know you have a powerful influence on the political scene. you guys have an obligation as well to check some of these allegations. everybody is very dazzled by the fact that mitt romney came in with some well-rehearsed lines. but now we have to sit back and say what is it exactly that he said, and is it true?
meningitis caused about i a bacteria and can be fatal one in ten times. there's a little defense. this is meningitis, an inflammation around the brain and spinal cord caused about i a fungus. much less common but can be just as deadly. we're talking about symptoms, nausea, high fever, stiff neck and this is what we're seeing in this outbreak. >> it's being linked to that steroid injection. how so? >> right, so the thinking intoer is that it's a contamination in either the production or packaging process as you said, this is a preservative-free steroid that came from a pharmacy in massachusetts. bianna, this i've distributed over 17,000 doses of this drug. it has been recalled but obviously the cdc is urging anyone who's had this injection in their back, steroid injection after july 1st to contact the doctor or the clinic that they got it from to find out if it came from massachusetts. >> quickly what are symptoms to look for. >> fever, nausea, stiff neck, generalized body aches, these are thing if you had this steroid injection this your back you want to get to your doctor or med
the national defense authorization act. this is what they are supposed to be good at. challenging republicans on what they are supposed to be good at, which is dollars and cents, the paul ryan plan is going to balance the budget in 28 years, and it is incumbent on growth built into this? come on. nobody believes this. everybody understands that this has to be mutual sacrifice on the part of all of us, and i will use mutual, and i think as long as it is mutual, we will suck it up and do this. but we are going to believe we are going to do nothing and we are going to fix it? no way. growth is going to come out of nowhere? we have got 0% interest grants. we are stagnant. the federal reserve, auditing the federal reserve. i would love to turn on the light and understand what is in the federal reserve balance sheet. how much are they buying up? how many assets are they buying? and what ever they by insulates in value, -- and whatever they buy inflates in value. host: you remember one of the previous callers that came up with something, and you get touched on some positions. how would you describe
akin's defense after begging him to drop out. reince priebus -- you know what his name is if you take out the vowels, it is rnc pr b.s. mitt romney will have to be called upon to see what he think about the todd akin -- because he didn't drop out. david duke ran and he got the nomination. he was the republican party nominee for senator from louisiana and president george h. w. bush was forced to come out and tell voters to vote for the democrat. i want to see mitt romney's feet put to the fire in much the same way. either cut this guy loose or defend him but mitt romney has to choose one. this new piece of audio is more damaging. this is a few months old. this is a piece of oughtio from a town hall meeting that congressman akin had. and an older male voter got up and asked him why he would oppose the lilly ledbetter act which promoted fair pay for women. todd akin's response is something that i think rand paul could have done more artfully but essentially, it's pretty much the most friendly endorsement of legal
to pay for $5 trillion in the tax cuts and $2 trillion in the defense spending that the military says it does not need is by asking the middle-class to pay more. i refuse to do that. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or raising their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut, just to pay for more tax cuts that we cannot afford. i will never turn medicare into a voucher. governor romney doubled down on the proposal last night, and he is wrong. no american should have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies. they should retire with the dignity they have earned. we will perform and strengthen medicare for a long haul, but reducing the cost of health care, not by asking seniors to pay thousands of dollars more, and we will keep promise of social security by taking the responsible steps to strengthen it. we will have a chance to talk about what is going on overseas, because our prosperity at home is linked to what happens abroad. four years ago, i promised to end the war in iraq, and i did. i said we would w
the president on the defensive a number of times. >> the seats flipped backward, and so people were essentially on the laps of the passengers behind them with their legs up in the air. >> i have never seen anything like that in all my years, 30 years of covering the airline industry. >> you say you are optimistic that you and maria will one day be together. how can you find that optimism? >> i always was an optimistic person. i think that it is because it's -- everyone is interested in that. i'm sure that -- maybe maria didn't say that, but i'm sure that maria wishes we could all be together. >> e ethel kennedy was asked what she would think of having you as a daughter-in-law and she said we could be so lucky. she said, "we would be so lucky." >> she is fantastic. i love her. >> you know nothing about me, but what you see on the outside. and i am much more than a number on a scale. >> kids are bullying do not let them bring you down. stand up for what you believe in. go with your heart. go with your gut. >> amazing what goes down in the course of a week, huh. >> fascinating to watch. >> and fin
, which is really interesting that axelrod and company is coming up with the new defense that mitt romney is a liar, like axelrod and company is somebody we should trust? weren't they the people who came out with libya was not a spontaneous -- was a span takenious thing. they said the stimulus would keep unemployment rate by 5.3 at this point in the election cycle. they've got a lot of explaining to do. >> gretchen: that jobs report happens to be coming out today. some predictors now, it will be an hour and a half, saying unemployment will go back up, maybe by a point. back to the debate, charles krauthammer, who is critical of romney last week saying he really needs to step it up and become more aggressive. then he was complimentary when he said he absolutely really won this debate hands down. here is his analysis now on president obama. >> it's what the french call the wit of the staircase, meaning the stuff that you wish you had said, all the witty remarks and rebuttals that you never said at the dinner, but you remember on the way out. so he had all these chances last night, which aga
the foreign minister is a vigorous defense not only of the regime's activities but they're fating terrorist activity, and lumping opposition and peaceful protesters into this whole rebel activity fighting the regime and call them terrorists and say, i think you have nations like qatar, saudi arabia, aiding the rebels. what you really have to do crack down on this funding and that's going to help with the political transition. >> secretary of state hillary clinton has talked about her frustration over the fact there hasn't been a meaningful united nations resolution on syria and she talked a little about what she intends to do about it. let's listen. >> what is no secret, that our attempts to move forward at the u.n. security council have been blocked repeatedly. on tuesday i met with joint special representative raheemy to discuss alternative strategies, but the united states is not waiting. >> alternative strategies. any idea what they might be? >> reporter: john, i think it's a lot more of what you've been seeing. the security council has been deadlocked, unable to get some action, possib
defense keeps it close and then he finds a way to work his magic near the end. you have to give that a try. that's not why they brought him in. i think they're going to stick with sanchez stubbornly longer than they should. >> this is why lou holtz is so right, when you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks. the thing is the quarterback's going to have a bad game. you've got to stick with that quarterback, ride the quarterback through the season. and then trade him at the end of the season. you know, sanchez, i don't know if it's good or bad, but every time he threw a pass, he was looking over at tebow. and it distracts you. >> i don't think that's what he was looking at. >> they've got 12 more games. if they ride him out through 12 more games, they could be in trouble. >> they could be in a position to get geno smith or matt barkley. >> they just trade him. >> so let's talk about the saints/packers. packers get jobbed on "monday night football," almost get jobbed again yesterday at home against the saints. >> it was going to be a riot. darren sproles fumbled the ball. the ball w
